Faber’s Lyrical Portraits Grace the Walls of Lima, Peru

When I was in Lima in 2009, I was captivated by Faber’s lyrical portraits on the walls of his city.  Since, his work has been featured in both MUEVO MUNDO: Latin American Street Art and GRAFFITI 365. Continuing to paint in public spaces, Faber is now preparing for his first solo exhibit in Lima.  Below are examples of his work on the streets:

And the following one, Old Man,  is on canvas:

Jay “J.SON” Edlin’s GRAFFITI 365 Presents an Ambitious Survey of Graffiti & Street Art

Featured in USA Today’s Pop Candy blog as one of three coffee table book recommendations, Graffiti 365 by Jay “J.SON” Edlin is much more. An ambitious global survey of the key graffiti writers and street artists of our time, it serves too as an ideal reference guide.  Here is a small sampling of images that accompany the writing:

Jay will be at Art Basel Miami Beach in early December. Meanwhile, my favorite post-publication photo is the one captured of former NYC mayor Ed Koch, who waged an aggressive campaign against graffiti back in the 80’s, signing GRAFFITI 365. (Thanks, Jay, for sharing it!)
